  • Blog Post: Smack!Down 2009 App Demo #2 - Microsoft Tag

    I love MS's new implementation of tag technology, and there is so much you cam already do with the new Microsoft Tag that you, well, just can't with std QR Codes. Firstly it's pretty hard to find tag reader applications for phones to read 1 or 2D barcodes. For the MS tag simply point your phone (WinMo...
  • Blog Post: Can You Stomach the Smack!Down?

    As you can tell from the other videos we’ve released over the week, no other breakout session at TechEd comes close to the energy, interactivity and pure fun, than the Smack!Down.

  • Blog Post: Scarcity

    Scarcity is a well known, and thanks to Social Scientists, proven, characteristic of influence. The scarcer something is, the more people will desire it. I always find it intriguing that in taste tests people actually find the scarcer choice tastier. They don’t just want the food more, or will pay more...
  • Blog Post: All the Toys

    There’s a lot that happens at TechEd in Australia, which to non-geek may seem, well, boring. At least that’s what my wife says.

  • Blog Post: We Aim to Fail

    In a conversation with someone (outside the tech industry) the other day, I asked the question “Why do you think Microsoft holds events like TechEd at a conference centre like at the Gold Coast?” and his response, no lies, was “Because they want a junket.” This from an accountant. Of course this couldn...
